    Green Mountain Power is exploring the possibility of a heat pump pilot program in Rutland and is looking for input.

    Power company officials are sitting down today with manufacturers, installers, lenders, local distributors and weatherization and efficiency experts to investigate the potential for heat pumps to warm the homes and businesses of some of their customers.

    Also known as mini-split heat pumps, the devices work much like a refrigerator to move heat from one area to another, according to GMP. Even with low temperatures outside, heat pumps can capture the heat in the air and automatically reverse the process in the summer to cool homes and businesses.

    The meeting will be held at the Franklin Conference Center in the Howe Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.
